come and go, and cnn came for a few days and then lost interest. i mean, different channels did come and go and we are the only channel that stayed. we came early from the minute that the revolution started and then we just didn't basically leave until the crackdown was so deep and complete that it wasn't possible to work anymore. >> chris, you have been, spent much of the past year in libya and afghanistan, both. i'm interested especially in libya, because among other things you went into the rebel-held port called misrata, and can you tell us how you got there, and did you have an escape plan at this point to get out, and what is the situation like there covering the rebels in kind of a, with the khadafy forces all around? >> well, misrata was surrounded by three sides and the fourth side was by water. and so the only way in was by boat and when the boats started going, we got on one. we went in for not quite a week, and it was a full-on siege. the people in misrata had started with literally swords and stones and sometimes swords they had made with sheets of metal and welding torc

, as a result of the administration's decisions during the auto bailout. appearing on cnn this sunday, white house chief of staff proclaimed this administration is the most transparent ever. not on this issue. we're going to find out why today. understandably i have serious concerns about how this administration, including the three members of the auto task force we have before us have continued to stonewall, provided silence on these issues and repeated failures to disclose information that are critical to the issues that have affected almost 20,000 people across the country, and that was done with taxpayers' dollars. this is not a venture that was undertaken with your own money. it was undertaken with tax payers' money and the openness that this administration promised needs to be enforced. in part we are here today because the three former auto task force members refuse to meet with, speak to or testify before the special inspector general for the t.a.r.p. program. it is my hope we will shed light on who at the administration made the decision to cut the hard-earned retirement benefits of
